2014-15 GUIDE TO MUSIC SCHOOLS

Longy School of Music
Bard College
MISSION
Longy School of Music of Bard College prepares musicians to make a difference in the world. At Longy, we’re committed to preparing our students to meet a changing musical landscape head-on, giving them the skills to perform, the ambition to teach, and the ability to reach audiences beyond those traditionally associated with classical music.
We require every student to live our bold mission—to prepare musicians to make a difference in the world—by finding a way to serve the community around them. And we are the only conservatory in the United States that weaves artistry and service together as an integral, required part of our curriculum.
And what we ask of our students, we give in return. Longy attracts some of the brightest music faculty in the world: GRAMMY award winners, Steinway Artists, and members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Boston Symphony Orchestras.
Today, Longy and its students stand at the vanguard of a movement to democratize the future of classical music and to expand access to music education in this country.
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS SCHOOL?
We see musicians as agents of change. We will enable you to decide for yourself what a meaningful life in music looks like, giving you the tools to make it a reality.
